Getting the apartment ready to sell

Well, we’re not ready by a long shot.  We keep throwing stuff out and giving it away and it just seems to quadruple in volume overnight.

A couple of weekends were all it took to get both bathrooms painted in an almond colour.  It brightened up the main bathroom, but made an astounding difference in the second bath which had been rag painted in a bright orange.  Next we will look for some nice second-hand lighting fixtures.  One of the problems we have found when trying to replace a builder-standard light-bar fixture is that all the second-hand bathroom lights look exactly like what we are trying to get rid of.  We will go out to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore this weekend to see what they have.

To go into the main bath, I made up a little picture.

I‘ve been quite taken with those subway signs like those Restoration Hardware sells, and thought it would be nice to remind people who view our little home how close we are to the Canada Line. It took me about an hour to make it up and I found a nice little frame at Michael’s to put it in and show it off.

In other news, DD looked out her kitchen window last week to find some men standing around surveying.  She asked them what they were looking for, and they said they were just seeing where the sewer line was.  For the laneway house.  So if the City of Vancouver knows it’s true, it must be true.

Meeting with the gang from the builders/designers this Friday.  Should be interesting. The designer emailed us today asking how tall we were.
